DetailsThe Double Lever Corker has twin handles that allow for easy corking. Simply place the cork into the chamber, place the corker on top of the bottle, and depress both levers. For best results, have an assistant on hand to help hold the bottle still.

3.4 / 5.065 ReviewsI like it.I do small batches and I can do 60 bottles with no problem. I've only been using it for 3 years but ok so far.August 23, 2011good starter productthis is a good corker for the money, and for those of us that are just starting out that don't want to spend a fortune on a hobby we're not sure if we're fully invested in. that said i've been using this same corker for the past 3 years with no major incident. the best way i've found to do this set up is to hold the wine bottle between my knees on the ground, that way it doesn't slide around while i'm trying to place the cork. not every cork goes in the same way, this is more to do with each wine bottle being slightly different, but i've never had one break or leak after placement.January 7, 2013Not sure why the bad reviewsI have never had a problem with this product. Had the first cork not go all the way down as far as I wanted (was bout 1 CM above the lip of the bottle), quickly learned to push the cork down a little when putting in the corker and voila, worked out great! I have done 30 bottle at a sitting with no issue. Very easy to use and does not take up a lot of space in the storage.January 26, 2013Easy to useVery easy to use, just set the bottle on the floor and push down on the handles, its that simple. Seals the bottles nicely with no issues.January 27, 2013nice upgrade over the hand corker than came with the basic kitThis is the best value for the money of any corker. It's way better than the one that comes with the starter kits. It's not as good as the $130 corkers, but its plenty good enough to do the job._x000D__x000D_The trick to setting the cork properly is to kneel on the ground, with the wine bottle held between your knees. And push the cork down a little when placing in the corker._x000D_March 12, 2013Works Fine for me!I have read many reviews on this product and all seem to have the same issue with the cork not seating flush with the top of the bottle. I too had the same issue with mine as well the first time I bottled. I did notice a problem it was "ME", I was rushing the cork, rushing the whole process. I have found now that when I took my time and let the corker do its job the #8 corks slide right in perfectly. Does this happen every time, no I still sometimes get a cork that does not seat perfectly as I would like, but I have found more times then not it is the operator of the equipment (ME) that is the problem. This corker work just fine if you take your time and not rush the process.March 22, 2013Quality Corker For BeginnersI just started bottling wine in wine bottles and this is my first corker. I bought it because it looked similar to a regular beer bottle capper. It is a little hard to figure out how to use it at first but after trying it a couple times in an empty bottle I was able to figure it out pretty quickly and it worked well. Very affordable and corks the bottles well in my book. Only reason for 4 stars is for lack of directions.August 26, 2015January 21, 2016Good corker for the moneyIt is a great little unit if you don't feel like dropping mega dough on a floor unit. It does require a little elbow grease, so I could see myself having to upgrade if I were in my 50's or 60's. I enjoy the screw on top that allows to push the cork in farther or not. That way while bottling smaller "sample " bottles it won't push the cork all the way through.March 26, 2010I really like itI read different reviews of this corker. My first time making wine, $23.00, I said I will try it. The first few bottles, perfect. The next two the cork would not bottom out. The next bottle I realized I had too much wine in that and the previous two. I checked the other 25, adjusted the wine level, and corked all 25 with absolutely no issues. I did it on a nice sturdy table, by myself, and no bottle support. If you are only doing 30 bottles at a time, this corker is perfect. Even if I had a bigger batch going I would still use it.January 19, 2011

Thanks.BEST ANSWER: For this corker, the #8 cork will be the way to go. #9's can be used, but they will be much harder to put in bottles than #8 corks would be. -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWould this be good for corking magnum sized wine bottles?
